Maybe also mention the LMS programme that was a direct result of the landscape report.
Synthesis: A synthesis of previous reports, case studies and project outcomes from the library systems environment in the UK and overseas. It will evaluate the potential to build on existing communities, products and services, generating an outline of the current state of the library systems landscape.Phase 2 - Landscape: Involves engagement and liaison with prioritised ‘pathfinder’ projects and with other relevant initiatives and entities within the wider environment. Enabling a baseline of the programme and evaluate the potential of projects to contribute to an understanding of future library systems infrastructure.Phase 3 - Evaluation and scoping: Analysis of the emerging options in order to scope the proposed service(s) and infrastructure.
A constant dance – nothing is fixed – but changes as the system and the user interact with each other. Neither comes away unchanged!

Jisc Library Systems
How can library systems ensure they are able
to serve the needs of next-generation library
services and users, as well as being both
effective and efficient in meeting reduced
budgets and rising user expectations?
The LMS Change project will develop and disseminate visions for the future of
library systems and a series of tools and guidance to support the community in
adopting to a new systems future.
